In remembrance: Jacorina Amanda Rossouw

09 December 2020

Dear colleagues and students

It is with great sorrow that we inform you of the death of our student, Ms Jacorina Amanda Rossouw (76), who passed away on 27 October due to natural causes.

In 2013 she commenced with occasional studies, after which she would register for a few law courses per year. This year she had registered for intermediate year subjects.

As an older student, she will be remembered as someone with ‘old school’ manners. She always referred to her lecturers by their titles, not by first name, even though she was their senior by half and sometimes twice their age. She was kind in the words she used when she spoke and was always full of praise. She had a way of making people feel good for doing what seemed the most menial of tasks.

Ms Rossouw is survived by her children, Hélène, Stefan and Lanelle.

The university has reached out to the family to offer support in this time of bereavement. Our sincere condolences go out to Ms Rossouw’s family, friends, and all who knew her.
